“I have travelled with top deck in the past and it was AMAZING, however this time around it was to as wonderful experience as I had in the past. Every place we visited was beautiful and the planned activities offered were great! However I would not recommend a tour where you join midway, as the group dynamic can be a bit off where some people are not very welcoming. This particular trip, I feel, was not very well planned in that there were a lot of driving days, which meant that we got o some places late and were unable to explore the city before moving onto the next. Our trip leader and driver were wonderful though! Although there were people who had never done a top deck before, who were put off of doing another top deck based on this trip. If I had not had such a good experience on my previous top deck, then I probably would have felt the same!”
